Announcement of Opportunity: Landscape Decisions Fellowships

UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) invite proposals to this call on the Strategic Priorities Fund programme on 'Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets'. This is a four-year multidisciplinary programme jointly delivered by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council, the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council and the Economic & Social Research Council on behalf of UKRI.

All fellowships will be in the area of landscape decision-making and may be in the form of:

  • Research Translation Fellowships in which fellows will translate the outcomes of research into policy-relevant tools and applications by working closely with end-users and stakeholders or by working with academic groups as a practitioner;
  • Community Engagement Research Fellowships in which fellows will implement a programme of research using a range of methods to engage land users and communities in landscape decision-making.

There is £1 million available for this call and fellowships can be held full- or part-time.
